ANOTHER SKETCH

So happy that I was able to get another card made using a second sketch from the Hero Arts April contest.


Here is my card:



This time I chose the Eiffel Tower background to make the panels, using four different shades of Distress Inks, shading from top to bottom as shown in the sketch.  I also used a scalloped circle and a sentiment from two different Hero Arts cling sets.

I've fallen in love with this gold embossing powder, so you will no doubt be seeing more cards using it here!

Today is going to be a beautiful spring day in Ohio and I hope to do a little work in my flower beds later.  Hope your day is fabulous!
